What you may not have known is that Campos is still posting on the left-wing Lawyers, Guns, and Money blog under his real name.
Now, his posts aren't all about legal education, in fact I would say most of them are not.
However, he still makes many good posts on the current fallout surrounding law schools, and the comments are numerous and often fantastic (and you will see some familiar names, like BoredJD, mack, and dybbuk).
Here are two of Campos' newest posts surrounding law schools. They are a two-part series "about how law schools are dealing with the sharp decline in demand for legal education."
The first is aptly entitled "Field of Nightmares," because it is dealing with the large decline in the University of Iowa's law school enrollment. The gist of the article is that the law school seems to be maintaining admission standards (as well as tuition increases) in the face of a declining enrollment. Inside Higher Ed pegs the newest 1L class at 94, compared with 155 last year.
The second post in the series is called "Dealing with the Crash." Here Campos unleashes his inner LawProf, opening with this:
I got a particularly glossy and garish bit of law porn in my mailbox yesterday, from American University’s Washington College of Law. It highlighted the school’s current one hundred and something million dollar building project, (a live stream of which can be viewed here), which is erecting a voluptuous and gleaming structure among the leafy streets of northwest Washington’sIn this post he notes that AU has a markedly different strategy than Iowa, in maintaining its class size by slashing admission standards. Later he notes a trick that AU is pulling with higher LSAT applicants in order to game the rankings system.

Anyways, just a brief Friday post highlighting an individual who has contributed a lot to the "scamblog movement." In his first post I highlighted he says it might be a series of posts, so here's to hoping there are more than just two!
